About Amandah

Hi there!

I am an experienced tutor specializing in Japanese language at the beginner-to-intermediate levels and in English language reading and writing. As a professional artist, I am also qualified to tutor Adobe Photoshop, and have done so at the college level.

I spent six months in Japan as a foreign exchange student, where I learned to speak the language from the Japanese themselves and passed the Japanese national language proficiency test. I studied Japanese calligraphy with a Buddhist monk and was taught the art of haiku writing by my Japanese host-grandmother.

It is my goal to help students not only pass their classes, but to understand the subject in question and why things are done a certain way. I try to break down concepts into their core pieces so that students can see their inner workings and apply them to similar situations in the future.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Game Art & Design with extensive training in Adobe Photoshop. I have tutored at the college level in this subject before, and use it almost exclusively in the artwork I produce for Eroth Productions, LLC.

Drawing

I am a professional illustrator with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Video Game Art and Design from the Art Institute of Phoenix. I have done commissioned artwork for private individuals, and designed the safety mascot for the Ground Based Midcourse Defense Safety organization Employee Involvement Team Project for the Boeing corporation. I also designed the battalion logo for the now-disbanded 5/1 AD Alpha Company Special Troops Battalion. In 2008, I worked for Universal Studios on the film "The Kingdom" as an Art Department Assistant and have my name listed in the credits. Currently, I am creating illustrations for Eroth Production's upcoming pencil and paper RPG game "Treasure Hunter" as well as standalone artwork for the same company.

Graphic Design

My degree in Game Art & Design included training in graphic design for book and game covers, business cards, and posters. On the business side, I handle the majority of graphic design for Eroth Productions, LLC, such the company logo, web ad banners, bookmarks, posters, and other promotional materials. Recently, I completed a project in which I created over 100 graphical elements, including icons, page borders, and illustrations.

Painting

I have experience using both acrylic and watercolor to create paintings and illustrations, both as a hobby and for my home business of Eroth Productions, LLC. I am familiar with a variety of techniques for creating texture and form in both media, and have had formal training in the use of guache and graphic marker as part of my degree in Game Art & Design. I am also able to translate these traditional techniques for use in digital media, including the painting of a full-color book cover for a book released in May 2016.

Wonderful Language Tutor!

Amandah P. is an excellent tutor. This past summer, she helped me brush up on my Japanese language skills so that I would be ready come fall for my second year of Japanese class at college. She is patient and flexible, easy to work with, and most importantly she knows her stuff. One of the big problems I have with Japanese (and that I know is common for many learning another language) is my level
